Company | Profile
The company's competitive advantage in 2016:
The Bangalore, India-based company is in a unique position to capitalize on the explosion of Internet use among that country's citizens. It also partnered with the Android software startup APUS, taking it further into China--where Google currently isn't.
What to look out for:
In 2016 we'll see InMobi find ways to embed itself deeper into users' devices. (With personalized home-screen ads, for example.)
Naveen Tewari has said he'd eventually like to seek an IPO and remain independent from competitors like Google and Facebook.
The company is also working with payment facilitators like Stripe and Alipay to develop a Buy Button for apps.
Top tip for getting a job at this company:
"Passion, perseverance, and grit are key characteristics--if you have these, you are a perfect fit to become a part of the InMobi family." --Anneka Patel, global communications manager, InMobi
